Opportunities in the Great Big Literary World- July 11, 2011

Song of the Day: I Just Wanna Live by Good Charlotte

   Hello all! How was the weekend? Anyone do anything productive? I wasn't very productive this weekend. It was my sister's birthday and between spending all day at Disney on Friday and a party with family on Sunday, I didn't get get much done. I did manage to have a great editors meeting on Skype with Pam and Quita about Black Fox. That was only my second time using Skype, but it was SO COOL. I should definitely use it more often. Starting Wednesday, I'll be off from my day job for a week. Until then, I'm trying to tie up some loose ends, which is the reason the opportunities are so short today. Still some good stuff, however.

A prize of $20,000 is given annually to honor a story collection written in English and first published in the U.S. Two runners-up will also receive $5,000 each. Entry Fee is $75 and the deadline is July 15, 2011. For more information and official guidelines, visit the link below.
